There was a full week of NFL action on Sunday featuring some great performances all around. The Pittsburgh Steelers had a mini-explosive offensive performance in a 37-27 win against the Detroit Lions. Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger had a strong four touchdown performance and wide receiver Antonio Brown had 2 touchdowns in the win. Somehow the Giants were able to pull even closer in the NFC East race by defeating the Green Bay Packers. Now with a 4-6 record, the Giants are only 1.5 games back of the division crown despite starting out 0-6.

There was some other sports action on Sunday with the NCAA Basketball season continuing a white hot start. The Belmont Bruins were able to upset the North Carolina Tar Heels 83-80 behind a late clutch three-pointer from J.J. Mann. In the NBA, the Portland Trail Blazers won their sixth consecutive game this season behind 25 points and 8 assists from point guard Damian Lillard in a 110-1000 overtime win over the Toronto Raptors.
